Computer locking up after a minute unless it's in safe mode

  1. Outside of safe mode, my computer locks up about a minute after getting past the login screen most times, and sometimes before the login screen finishes loading. I reset my pc / reinstalled windows keeping personal files, disabled all start up programs and services, reinstalled nvidia graphics driver, and the problem's still happening. It started yesterday by locking up out of nowhere and then this is what happened when I forced a restart. There was a notification that java needed to update pretty soon before that, idk if that could have anything to do with it but I can't update it now because safe mode with networking isn't working, it loads like normal safe mode but doesn't display any wifi networks. By locking up I mean the screen freezes and my mouse and keyboard can't affect it so all I can do is force restart. Please let me know if any more info is needed to try to help thank you
